Professor Chu's research focuses on the history of the Chinese and Chinese mestizos in the Philippines and the different Chinese diasporic communities in the world, centering on issues of ethnicity, gender, and nationalism. Proficient in several languages, Chu was born and raised in the Philippines, but has spent some time in China, and is now based in the United States. This semester he is teaching a course on the Philippines at Mount Holyoke, which several Liga members are currently taking.
